Cantal Entre-Deaux Hard Cheese
£5.00 Per 200g
Made from cow’s milk, this hard, aged cheese is famously straight from France’s Auvergne region.
Cantal Entre Deux is the mid-aged cheese in the Cantal cheese family, matured for 90 to 120 days to give it its well-ripened texture.
You’ll get the scent of butter and cream, as well as an earthy, slightly tangy and nutty taste that’s been a classic for over 2,000 years.
Out of stock
Matured for at least three months, Cantal Entre Deux is classically aged. The Cantal owes its shape and texture to double pressing: the crushing gives it its supple and melting texture.
Cantal cheese became famous thanks to its fruity flavour, though you’ll also notice the flavours and aromas of cream and butter balanced with pepper and spices.
A classic cheese needs a stylish wine to match. Our choice? An elegant, summery Muscadet, AOP Drouet 2018 from the Loire Valley. It’s dry and light, so pairs perfectly with a crumbly cheese.
About the producer
Produced in the pastures of Haute Auvergne with a rainy climate and difficult soils, Cantal cheese has a high milk content. In fact, 400 litres of cow’s milk are needed to produce a 40Kg piece of Cantal cheese. The milk is processed while still warm, or warmed in tanks. The cheese maker wipes it with a cloth and turns it regularly as it matures.
The methods are so well-respected the cheese has been manufactured on the same land for around 2,000 years.
How to enjoy
With a firm texture, enjoy Cantal Entre Deux with crackers, nuts, apple and grapes. We also like crumbling this pressed cheese into a soup or salad, or letting it melt into a gratin or topper for a deliciously milky strong finish to a dish.
Our utmost concern is get you the right cheese in the right condition right to your door. With that in mind please allow 3-5 working days for your cheese box to arrive.
However the package will be posted on a next day service so as not to spend too much time in transit. Each package will come with a gel ice pack to keep the temperature in the box as low as possible.
